13.12.2016 - Writers in The Bath, Sheffield

Writers in The Bath

The Bath Hotel,
66 Victoria St,
Sheffield. S3 7QL
7.30pm
£4

This is my Sheffield launch of ‘As In Judy’ – my new poetry collection with Flapjack Press. It’s my first solo poetry publication since 2012. I’m really excited: I’ve had wonderful editing from Char March, and both John Hyatt and David Hoyle have made blushingly complimentary comments about the poems.


Love hearing and meeting great poets? It’s second Tuesdays at Writers in The Bath

With special guests Rosie Garland & Stephanie Bowgett
Welcome to our final programme of 2016 - and we’re going out not with a bang but a dazzling conflagration (I hope not literally - the open fire is usually well behaved) but in terms of the brilliance of our awe-inspiring guests.

We’re honoured to have two writers who have both made massive contributions in diverse ways to literature and entertainment in the north of England. Both are making significant journeys to reach us, so let’s turn out in force to welcome them to the warmth of The Bath.

FLIM NITE

The Three Minute Theatre, Afflecks Palace, Northern Quarter
Doors @ 7.30pm
Acts @ 8.00pm
£2 suggested donation

What would 'Die Hard' look like distorted by poets, comedians, and musicians?
With guests including Rosie Garland

FLIM NITE is a monthly performance event based at Three Minute Theatre in Manchester's Northern Quarter. At no point do we show the film in question!

Each of our performers has been given a chunk of 'Die Hard' to turn into something new. Come and watch as our acts transform an action-packed vest-wearing blockbuster into something unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure.

We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a flim.

There are a limited number of open mic slots available! Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a slot. Remember it's flim as in FLIM and nite as in NITE. Got it? Slots are three minutes long and material must be 'Die Hard'-related.
